[wicked happy =  wicky]

Thanks you for visiting my site. It’s easy to get around. What are you looking for? My blog (rants, flash, and writing info) is under Wicker Chitter. Need editing or formatting or book covers? Look under Services.

Want something to read? Look under Print Books or E-Books For Sale.  Or go to my Smashwords site at https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/camack for e-books.

Writing Credits is my “bragging page.”  All my published writings, other than my self-published works, are listed there.

My grandkids are my heavenly joy. I’ve written a bit about my experiences as a grandmother on My Grandchildren page.

    Hi Cathy, I am glad Bob B. gave us your link. it was fun reading your post. Your life sounds like mine, in the last chapters and in a hurry to finish my first manuscript. Time is fleeting, and goes even faster each day. it seems like an hour is shorter than sixty minutes, don’t you think? I do art curating for a museum, and I paint too. Along with writing, it is a full schedule.

  2. Hi Cathy, I enjoyed the story and glad Bob sent us over here, Marian
